We took the grandkids who had never seen a windmill. Imagine the thrill of seeing the windmill in action.

The friendly volunteers provided an excellent tour and history about the mill and workers. There are plenty of tools, working parts and original artefacts on display.

It was fun climbing up the narrow stairs and imagining life of the millers, such very hard work but how fascinating to produce an essential part of everyday food that we now take for granted.
